The Tech Report spotted leaked slides that detail AMD's future 1090FX and 1070 chipsets. These next-gen chipsets for Bulldozer are currently planned for 2012, but the site adds that new AMD CEO Rory Read may shake up the roadmap as he intends to follow a new path.
According to the latest slide leaked by Turkish site Donanim Haber, AMD is prepping two new Bulldozer chipsets for 2012. The 1090FX and 1070 will reportedly rely on a new SB1060 south bridge that serves up eight 6Gbps SATA ports. USB 3.0 support will also be offered with the 1090FX, but it looks like that feature didn't make the cut for the 1070. The 1070 also seems to be missing dual-x16 CrossFire support, another perk reserved for the 1090FX.
The slide makes several references to Intel's current and upcoming platforms, noting the AMD line's lack of PCIe 3.0 support. Intel's Smart Response SSD caching scheme is also mentioned, and it doesn't look like AMD has an answer. Asus has already developed its own SSD caching scheme designed to work with a Marvell SATA controller, and I'd expect similar solutions to migrate to high-end 1090FX boards if AMD doesn't offer something itself.
